    You cannot put TWP on top of another stain unless you strip that first. Once removed you should look at the 1500.

    cepatter, prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first before applying a maintenance coat of TWP. This article explains better:

    TWP cannot be applied on top of the Behr. It will probably have adhesion issues.

    I have a cedar deck that is two years old. Last year I treated it with BEHR natural cedartone which is now peeling everywhere. I am stripping the deck but some of the vertical posts the BEHR actually stuck. Is your 1501 Cedartone a good match for this? I will probably sand and a clean the posts and strip the deck completely.

    David, you must remove the Cabot first. The TWP is a stain and a sealer.

    I have a white cedar deck that is about 8 years old. The condition of the wood is pretty good. We live in Michigan. My dilemma is that I'm staining the deck every year. For the past two years I've used Cabot stain. I'm interested in the 1500 series. Should I strip/treat the deck before staining, even if the colors are the same? What should I use if I want to change the color? Should I apply some type of sealer after the stain? Thanks

    Cheryl, you would need to 100% remove th Behr if switching to TWP.

    The deck is 12 years old, it is cedar wood, not to bad condition, besides the stain i have used constantly peels off every winter..I have used Behr Stain, semi transparent and solid and the same thing happens every spring, it peels and chips off.
    I looked last year and there was a store in St. Paul, MN that carries this , i am looking for a store please advise.

    If you sand then you should use a deck cleaner and wood brightener after to prep and remove any sand dust.

    Either series would work fine.

    I have an eight-year-old pressure-treated Yellowpine wood deck. It has been stained previously, and I'm uncertain whether it's oil or water based. I've pressure washed the deck and most of the stain has been removed but there are areas where the stain is remaining. If I choose to sand the remaining stained areas will any other surface prep be required?

    The deck is in partial shade and in the shaded areas I've had a problem with mildew the past. Would you recommend the TWP 1500 or 100 stain?

    New wood should weather for 4+ months then cleaned and brightened before staining. Only 1 coat of stain on new wood.

    Have a new sel dry TK WRC deck. Has not been stained. Build around Feb. 01, 2013. Would like to use TWP1501 cedar stain. Has been getting rain on and sun here on the Olympic Peninsula. Will do a light wash, but when to stain?
